    Crazy boredom meets insane motivation. And it just kept getting more and more elaborate. I bet these guys were edgy as hell while they were getting everything right.

    That was superb! Alright, one continuous camera shot would`ve been better, but it was very well done nonetheless.

    Oh, and surprise, surprise, it was entirely done by men!

    Men are better than women.

    I`m a bit sceptical about some parts, though.
    Like the slinky doing all of those stairs and the dartboard swinging that far around just by a dart hitting it..

    Most women don`t see a point to that kind of thing. But either way, holy cow. That was just.. insane.

    I did wonder about the camera cuts, and the arrow that shoots itself makes me nervous.. but it`s still some massive innovation and a pain in the butt to maneuver around, I`m sure.

    That was interesting. I wanted to do something like this when I was a kid but never got around to it. Now I just don`t see the point.

    Hey Cold, does it really matter who is better? Trying to prove a better gender doesn`t really get you anywhere, unless you want to get rid of women.

    Very cool, even though it wouldn`t load all the way through... Still, I do think its impressive that some minds can think this kind of thing up, because I would just end up getting bored halfway through and quitting...

    But yeah, if it didn`t, it should have made breakfast....

    The whole point of a rube goldberg device is to do something VERY SIMPLE, not to make breakfast lunch and dinner for you. And as far as time goes they did have alot of it. and for the people who think that guy is a moron, how do you know he wasn`t just bored and made one?

    who cares what the whole point of a rube goldberg device is... its a ridiculous point. how about stop catering to definitions and make a complicated device that also does something complicated, LIKE making breakfast? Itd be a hell of a lot more useful, thats for sure.
